We always have separate quarters for boys and girls and where possible place campers of a similar age in a room together.

If you have any special requirements or would like to request to share with a friend, we will try to accommodate you, just let us know in advance.

Food

Meal times at Camp Framlingham offer a range of freshly cooked nutritious food, all served within the grand dining hall, located in the heart of the main building. As well as traditional English cuisine, the kitchen also offers a range of international cuisine throughout the week with both hot and cold options.

The dining hall is always open for campers to collect water and is accessible from the main social area of the campus, which is also in the main building.Dietary requirements can be met when we are aware in advance.

Activities

Camp Framlingham offers all of our multi-activity sessions such as archery, crate climbing, quad biking and more whilst being outside surrounded by beautiful countryside and looking over the lake to the castle.

There is newly built indoor swimming pool which will be available when a lifeguard is working and in the evenings, we have a selection of entertainment planned, from campfires to discos, talent shows and fair nights.

Excursions

During the 2-week programme, our staff will take all our campers on 3 organised day trip excursions. These fully supervised trips are the perfect way to spend the day off-campus with new friends – from day trips to big cities such London and Cambridge or social trips to Norwich or Ipswich for shopping or bowling.

(3 excursions during 2-week programme – Wednesday, Saturday, Wednesday)

Care and Supervision

Our Camp Leaders are responsible for the pastoral care of all those in our care and ensure that everyone is sleeping well, eating well, joining in, making friends and having a great time. During free time, our teenagers are able to explore the campus with friends, whilst being supervised by their house parents. Being located in a town, we offer campers the ability to go off-site as an alternative to an activity session; however a member of Xplore staff will always accompany them.

International Camp

Our camps are available to children from all over the world. Integration and immersion is central to how we operate as an organisation, and by encouraging lots of social interaction between different cultures and creating a diverse international community at camp, it can really develop every child’s self-confidence in communicating with others.
